“Ding Dong”, who could that be? If you’re like me, you don’t answer the door if you’re not expecting someone when you’re the only one home. In this day and age, it could be asking for trouble. However, it could also be a delivery person, a solicitor, an unexpected friend or family member, or a nosy neighbor. Since your X-ray vision isn’t working at the moment, you decide to play it safe rather than be sorry so you don’t answer. Your home and property inside are probably among your most valuable assets so it’s important to you to keep these possessions protected. DoorBot is the perfect device to help you monitor and protect your home from unwanted visitors either while away or if you’re just hanging out inside.
See who is at your door anytime, anywhere
DoorBot is a simple, yet powerful wireless doorbell that streams live video and audio of your front porch directly to your smartphone or tablet. All you have to do is install DoorBot, download the free app and then you’re ready to spy, I mean, watch for visitors. Every time someone rings your doorbell, you’ll not only be able to see who it is, but you’ll also be able to talk to them. It gives you the peace of mind while you’re away from your home and also the convenience while in it.
Perfect while your away from home
This device is great while you’re away from your house at the office or on vacation because you can communicate with delivery folks as if you’re actually home. “Just leave it on the doorstep please.” Maybe you’re running late and the pizza delivery person beat you to your house before you got there. “Hang on just 5 minutes, I’m running behind.” You may decide that you want an unknown visitor to think your house isn’t vacant so give them the illusion you are there. DoorBot is perfect when you’re away because it makes you feel more connected to your house knowing your doorstep is usually less than three feet away. The video is streamed over your wireless internet so all you have to do is take a look at your iPhone or iPad to find out who that unexpected visitor is.
Also convenience when you are home
DoorBot is just as awesome when you are home and want to find out who rang the doorbell without being interrupted. Whether you’re watching Netflix, working on a project, visiting with a friend or in the middle of an intense cupcake cook-off, you don’t have to worry about dropping everything to answer the door. Don’t want to be disturbed? Maybe a solicitor or unwelcome visitor shows up. The video feed will still stream live on your iPhone screen, but you can simply ignore them so they’ll never even know you were at your house all along. Perhaps you’re playing in the backyard or the basement, where you can’t hear the doorbell to let in expected guests. DoorBot brings the front door to you so all you have to say is, “the front door is open, come on in!”
Besides being easy to install and usually lasting up to a year (depending on your AA battery life), the DoorBot comes with the free app so you can easily sync your iPhone or tablet once it’s mounted to your door. It’s also very aesthetically pleasing to the eye so it won’t look like a hunk of junk is mounted to your doorframe. An LED ring lights up to emphasize the push-to-talk button. Plus, the camera is infrared allowing you to see clear video during the day or at night. However, I’m going to say the best feature is theft prevention. Besides always improving the mounting bracket to prevent pesky thieves, DoorBot guarantees that if it a device is stolen, they will replace it free of charge.
